Haven to Return September 11th

HavenSyfy has announced that Haven, based (rather loosely) on Stephen King’s The Colorado Kid, will return for its fifth season beginning on September 11th. A TVLine exclusive has the first images of the new season, as well as this description of the premiere, “See No Evil:”

” . . . the gang learns that the victory is fleeting, as they are quickly thrust into uncharted waters. Duke is now a ticking time bomb, at death’s door and fighting to contain all the Troubles within him, while Nathan faces his greatest fear that Audrey — the woman he’s fought so desperately to save — may be gone forever. Making matters worse, Haven is hit by a strange new Trouble that’s silencing the townsfolk.”

Will you be watching? I’ll admit I haven’t liked the past few seasons as much as the first two, but I’m still looking forward to heading back to Haven.

Moriarty Returns to Elementary on January 2

ElementaryMoriarty (played by Natalie Dormer) is returning to Elementary in the January 2nd episode, and Entertainment Weekly has an exclusive first image from the episode (thumbnail at left; click to see the whole thing) and a chat with EP Rob Doherty about it. Here’s how Moriarty gets involved with Holmes and Watson again:

“A young girl is kidnapped in New York City, and Sherlock and Joan come to believe that Moriarty may have orchestrated the abduction, which is a tad confusing since she’s been in federal custody for several months now. So in the episode, they seek her out and she becomes something of a participant in the investigation into the kidnapping.”
